Now Available! Early Norfolk Revisited - 2nd Edition

The Norfolk Historical Commission is a dedicated group of volunteers, whose goal is to increase the knowledge and appreciation of the people, places and events that helped to create our present day Norfolk by collecting, preserving and disseminating Norfolk's history. We do this by collecting and preserving historical records, books, documents, photos and other materials, which may be of significance, relating to the history of Norfolk. We also preserve current items that may be of historical significance or interest to our townspeople, in the future. With this in mind we buried a time capsule at the dedication of our Norfolk Town Hall in 1998. We have recently published the second volume of our oral history: Norfolk Stories. Both volumes are currently on sale at the Town Clerk's office.
